Brera, the famous mocassin with bows, icon of Fratelli Rossetti, completes half a century and the brand proudly celebraties this milestone.
Brera was born in 1968, the year in which Europe is crossed by great cultural and social movements destined to change the history of the Continent. So Fratelli Rossetti, on the occasion of the Fall Winter 2018/19 collection introduces an important novelty: the introduction of the “bow”. Born initially as a model for men, Brera is also declined in a female version, becoming one of the symbols of the mannish style.
Fratelli Rossetti manages to perfectly combine elegance, comfort and originality: the embroidery variant stands out and the name is hand-stitched on the side, designed to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary. Absolute novelty is the model with a clamp decorated with jewelry pendants: an oyster, a little bow with metal and a tassel. Next to the Brera version, Fratelli Rossetti offers shoes with masculine connotations, but also made feminine thanks to beads or embroidery.
A collection therefore played on dualisms and ambiguities, which manages to reach a vast audience, managing to satisfy everyone’s wishes. The elegance of the other, as the brand says, is not in the heels, but in style!
